MIND : ITS MYSTERIES AND CONTROL : 23.3.2



Chapter 23 : Pleasure And Pain : 3.2
 3. Sense-Pleasure Is Only A Mental Deception-2.
Pleasure arising from external objects is evanescent, transitory and fleeting. It is mere nerve-titillation and mental deception.
Jiva joins with mind and Vritti and enjoys the Vishayas (sense-objects).

The thing that gives you pleasure gives you pain also.

"Ye hi samsparsaja bhoga duhkhayonaya eva te-The delights that are contact-born, are verily wombs of pain."

The body is an abode of misery and disease.
Wealth brings a lot of trouble in acquiring and keeping safe.
Sorrow springs from every connection.

Women are a perpetual source of vexation.
Alas! People prefer this path of misery to that of spiritual enjoyment.
Swami Sivananda
